Yes, this is Las Vegas and everything but sometimes you still have to deal with real world problems even here.
It is the winter time which means the temperatures drop. Sometimes even here in the desert those temperatures will drop below 32 degrees which is widely speculated to be the freezing point of water.
When Water goes into this temperature range it turns solid and expands and sometimes causes mass amounts of damage to your property.
The last few days, this is what has happened.
So, my PSA is for everyone out there to COVER YOUR FUCKING PIPES.
If they are outside and exposed to the elements you are an IDIOT if you don't have them insulated and wrapped by something, even if it's your old pee-stained underwear.
Your pipes will burst, your ball valves will crack, your Anti-Siphon and Back Flow Preventers and Pressure Vacuum Breakers will all burst causing you a TON of headaches and a good deal of time and money to fix as well.
You knew winter was coming but you left your shit unprotected.
Do you not put the condom on and say "Well, I sure as shit didn't see that coming" (Har Har).
Next year be prepared and save yourself a headache (and a nagging wife or girlfriend) and wrap that shit up.
This has been a PSA from the grrouch who has had to tell everyone and their mother that NO, we don't have that and have been sold out for nearly 2 days now.
Stop looking at me like I'm crazy - you're the idiot who didn't protect his junk.
